5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Yellowish straw, slightly cloudy, large sudsy white head, spotty lacing, lively carbonation.   Grassy nose, some straw and barnish character.   A little bright, also slightly bready... but ever so slight.   Has a subtle spice to it, perhaps even a little bit of pepper.   Not bad, some cereal on the backside.   Wished it was a bit more tart and floral, but alas its an American example.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly hefty for a Saison.   Finish does pick up some tartness, a little dry too.   Feels a little mealy tho.   Decent example, not bad, but wished it was more floral and bright.

rosenbergh (11374) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2011
355 ml bottle. From Coldbrewky. Big thanks to Steve!
Came out of the bottle like a rocket. Hazy orange yellow colour with big white head. Yeast, tart fruitiness, apple sauce, mild caramel sweetness and mild wheat. Flavour is yeast, dryish malt, some fruity sweetness, mild alcohol, mild spices, mild fruity hoppiness and wheat. Quite smooth and enjoyable.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 14, 2011
355mL thanks to Blinkin. A hazy glowing gold pour yields a larger, white, brilliant head. Nice retention. White wisps of lace. Nose is apricot and small vinegar. Taste is musty and oatmeal malty. Odd palate. Mild lemon and cardboard with eggy sulphur and odd tartness. A little blander with lemon and lavender soap. Odd.

coldbrewky (1730) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Bottle: Cloudy yellow with thin bright white head. Nose of tart malt. Mouthis hit with a jab of tartness that is bolstered by wheat and sweet yeast tone. Body rounding increases to a pear and sour apple blended finish. Not bad.

Goldenpole (10) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 13, 2011
On Tap at Quinns in Seattle, WA. Hazy gold with an medium white head that slowly fades to light lacing. Nose is spicy with a bit of hay, and some lovely barnyard . A bit too malty up front but a nice spicy yeast and a very dry, saisony finish. Pretty good saison, would drink again.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Color was golden in color with a fluffy head. Aroma has some is spice and decent amount of malt, I get some lemon and yeast aroma and flavors. There is a slight earthy grass feel to this brew.
